Facing OCD and Addiction

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This support group aims to bring together individuals suffering with the unique challenge of dual-diagnosis OCD and addiction. The group is open to anyone who personally self-identifies as struggling with both substance use and managing OCD. This is a safe forum for members to express the tribulations and successes they have found, to seek out support and build community around this often-neglected topic. Both the group facilitators have personal experience with this topic. Participants are not required to be in any particular stage of change or sobriety to participate. We hope to increase awareness of dual diagnosis and offer support via optional contact exchange for supporting each other in maintaining recovery following the conference.
